THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. Can you talk about to how nerve-wracking it gets when you have so many match points and they go by? Does it put pressure in your mind or do you just try to work on the next point?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: You have to try to think in the next point, of course. When you lose attempts to win the match of course you think a little bit too much, but in these kind of moments you have to think in the next point and be focus in the next point. No more.
Q. You served really well today. How do you feel?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Yeah. One of the key of the match I think I served really well in important moment. A few aces at important moments like 7-7 in the tiebreak. And also one of the important keys today was I think return. I return really good his serve and I put all the balls in. I play a really solid match.

ROGERS MASTERS

MONTREAL, QUEBEC
THE MODERATOR: Questions for Juan Carlos.
Q. How do you analyze the match? Where do you think that Lleyton played maybe better?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: I think was pretty close match – both sets. When I finished first set, I think, you know, the first-serve percentage was the same, the winners was the same. Was pretty close, only he won one more point than me in the first set. It’s difficult to say what he did better than me.
Second set, of course, the only game I played bad in the whole match was the first game of the second set. It was very important to the end of the match.
Q. I guess it also demonstrate for a tournament like this, the draw is very difficult, to have a match-up like that in the first round.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Yeah, it’s pretty difficult to have it. There is a lot of tough match in the draw, in the first round. Obviously, mine was the toughest one. You know, it’s like this. We cannot do anything for it.

LONDON, ENGLAND
THE MODERATOR: Juan Carlos. Who would like to ask the first question?
Q. How did you feel today? Must have thought you were in with a pretty good chance after that second set.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: No, you know, today was all the time very difficult to hit the ball, you know, nicely like the other days.
During the third set I start to, you know, not feel the ball as nice as I was feeling the first two sets. You know, I couldn’t make any point in the third.
But then at the fourth, I try it again. I did a lot of (indiscernible) but the little chances with two breakpoints in the third game, and I couldn’t make it. Was difficult to break his serve.
Q. The conditions with the wind, do you feel had it been a calmer day you could have given more of a challenge?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: You know, I knew before to play him that always is very difficult to beat him in any conditions. But today, you know, the worst conditions to feel the ball good, try to hit the ball strong all the time.

Today was almost impossible to hit the ball three times nice. Was very difficult to play out there.

LONDON, ENGLAND
THE MODERATOR: Juan Carlos Ferrero. Questions, please.
Q. After winning two sets in the third round, the tiebreak, what was going through your mind?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Today?
Q. Yes.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: It was very important to win because the rain was coming again. You know, I knew was a very important match for me, so tried to finish in three sets. Also I think was very important to be fit as well tomorrow.
Q. How do you feel about the fact that Roger has had a nice long rest?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Well, you know, he has a little bit lucky with this match against Haas. But, anyway, if he had to play a matches or not, it’s going to be the same tomorrow I think. Physically he’s very good, so he recover very good, so doesn’t matter if he played or not.
Tomorrow is going to be difficult same as if he didn’t play.

WIMBLEDON
June 29, 2007
LONDON, ENGLAND
THE MODERATOR: Juan Carlos Ferrero.
Q. Was that one of your best performances on grass of your career?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Could be, yeah. Could be. The most important thing today I think I enjoy it the whole match. Maybe less the first set, then I start to play very aggressive all the time with my serve and with my forehand, attacking to his backhand all the time.
You know, like I said, I enjoyed the whole match. This is the more important thing.
Q. Have you come to enjoy playing on grass more over the years, or is it still something you don’t particularly look forward to?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Of course you have to learn a lot to play very good on grass. You know, during passing the years of course I enjoy much to play here.
But anyway I thinking in the last two or three years it’s slower, the courts, and we have more time to try to hit good the ball. So I think it’s important also for the players.

R. FEDERER /J. Ferrero 6-3, 6-4
Interview de: JUAN CARLOS FERRERO
THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. One point away from 4 1 Roger seemed to (indiscernible). The match seemed to change after that. Was that also your perception?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Yeah, it was a big change. That ball was very important to me to win it because it was 4 1 and to serve, and I think the history of the first set maybe it turns a little bit.
After this, he start to play more aggressive and he won like seven points in the row very easy hitting the ball so hard, and I couldn’t have the chance to fight.
Sometimes with him, you know, you have the feeling that you are so bad because when he start to play amazing it’s really difficult to follow his rhythm of the game.
But that ball was very important I think for the first set. I mean, it’s not the history of the whole match, but it was very important.
